Make other people happy

[great big story]

Some of the best roses in the world bloom in Kenya. While the country is widely known for its scenic national parks and wildlife reserves, it’s also a major flower producer. Winnie Gathonie Njonge is the production manager at Nini Flowers, which sits on the shores of Lake Naivasha. She knows all there is about growing perfect roses and oversees the harvesting of 300,000 to 450,000 a day. “The ultimate goal of growing roses is to make other people happy,” she says. It brings her joy to know the roses she cultivates are sent to the United States, Japan and other countries, spreading love and beauty all over the world. This Great Big Story was made possible by  Kenya Tourism

matthew mole

Of all of the places
and all of the spaces that I’ve ever seen and that I’ve ever been its true
I’d walk through a town I could only have dreamed but the beauty surrounding means nothing to me, it’s you
Where you are is where I always want to be
Anywhere as long as you are there with me
I will take you to the places I have seen
Take my heart and run along
‘Cause I’m running after you,
I’m running after you,
And i’ll do what I can do,
And I’ll do it all for you
We’ll come back home,
we’ll come back home one day
But right now we are called to see a place
Where you and I will change the world we know
Anywhere that I’m with you is home
Where you are is where I always want to be
Anywhere as long as you are there with me
I will take you to the places I have seen
Take my heart and run along
Cause I’m running after you,
I’m running after you,
And I’ll do what I can do,
And I’ll do it all for you
All the things that we will see and all the things we’ll know
Take my hand and walk with me, we’ll never be alone
‘Cause I’m running after you,
I’m running after you,
And I’ll do what I can do,
I’ll do it all for you,
And I’ll do it all for you

Jeremy Hewitt, (born 4 March 1984), known by his stage name Jeremy Loops, is a South African singer and songwriter.
People go without wait for my honey
Waiting here for you
Others choose to stay in the tiny cage
Not my people, not you
So won’t you stay, we can figure it out
Find our hope, maybe lose our doubt
You should know whatever I do, when distance calls
I’ll be sending for you
Singing
My people, oh my people
Nothing compares to the soul of my people
My people, oh my people
Nothing compares to you. ooh
‘Cause people like you
‘Cause people like
‘Cause people like you
Oh my people
‘Cause people like you

‘Cause people like you
My people, Oh my people
I tried to find my place out there
To start with something new
To try to find my way out there
To escape from all that I knew
I had to find a way to make peace out there
To try to grow up alone to
Find a way to make peace out there but
It never felt like home
Without
My people, oh my people
Nothing compares to the soul of my people
My people, oh my people
Nothing compares to you. ooh
‘Cause people like you
‘Cause people like

Oh my people
‘Cause people like you

My people, Oh my people
Say I
I found a place I love
I found a place I love
And there’s something about it
It is keeping me honest
Been living with a cold heart
Now I’m moving to the darkness now
I’m just getting started
Yeah I’m just getting started
I found a place I love
I found a place I love
Where
My people, oh my people
Nothing compares to the soul of my people
My people, oh my people
Nothing compares to you. ooh
‘Cause people like you
‘Cause people like
